Rapid Prototyping of Plastics: 3D Printing Process & Material Selection

On-Demand Course

Recorded on Nov 28, 2017

Scale up faster to production quantities with 3D printing & make manufacturing of larger, complex parts a reality by better selecting the right prototyping process & plastic material.

Paul Mastro will review all prototyping options, their pros & cons (w.r.t. cost, quality...), latest equipment developments & new material availability. He will help you evaluate your prototyping needs better for higher productivity & lower costs.

Why should you view this course?

Be it improving time to market or making parts that don't seem practically possible, the solution lies in 3D printing of plastics! But the selection of the right prototyping process is not simple, considering the limitations w.r.t. plastic material options

Also, the intended use of the prototype (product testing, form & fit model, marketing sample...) plays a key role in selection. Join this course and:

  1. Get a detailed overview of the array of prototyping methodologies (stereolithography, FDM, SLS, vacuum forming…) and understand their pros & cons

  2.  Select the right combination of process & plastics depending on intended end use, market application & available material choices (ABS, PLA, engineering plastics…)

  3.  Scale-up to production quantities faster by making better decisions w.r.t. prototyping options (quality & cost considerations) for your plastics development
